After a colectomy with small intestine attached to rectum is is more common to lose weight or gain weight? Be bloated or not?  I am currently getting ready for this surgery on Thursday of this week and hope to feel better and not have to rely on laxitives to wretch my guts every day. But since I've had this problem of dismotility I seem to always have a distended abdomen and have gained twenty lbs, even though I do not eat to gain from a calorie stand point.
Any adivce from reader's experiences would be welcome.

Hi and welcome,

I personally lost about 12 lbs after my surgery and didn't gain any of it back, it will be a year this week that I had my surgery.  Everybody is different, but I did want to wish you the very best with your surgery and to tell you that you will be amazed with how good you are going to feel.

 Take care and I'll be thinking of you,

Judy
